Step 13

Make the model, shadow, cap, blood layers selected then press Cmd/Ctrl+G to create a group for them. Change the mode of this group from Pass Through (default group mode) to Normal 100%. On the top of the layers within this group, make a Curves adjustment layer to darken the model and the relevant details:

On this layer mask use a soft black brush to reduce the darkness on some parts shown below:

Step 14

I used Hue/Saturation to reduce the saturation of the layers in this group:

Step 15

Create a Curves adjustment layer to increase the lightness on the model a bit:

On this Curves layer mask use a soft black brush to erase the parts we don't want to be affected by this adjustment layer:

Step 16

Open the smoke image (feel free to use your own). Choose Channels in the Layers Panel then right click Red, choose Duplicate Channel:

On Red channel copy, press Cmd/Ctrl+L to open the Levels window. Change the shadows and highlight value to get a stronger contrast:

Here is the result:

Press Cmd/Ctrl+Option/Alt+6 to load the smoke selection:

Select the RGB channel, right click the selection and choose Layer via Copy. We have the smoke on a new layer:

Step 17

Put the extracted smoke over our working image and flip it horizontally by clicking Edit > Transform > Flip Horizontal:

Add a mask to this layer and use a soft black brush to reduce the smoke intensity and make other details visible:

Step 18

I used Curves to darken this effect:

drunk18[4]

Apply masking on this Curves layer mask using a soft black brush with a very low opacity (10-15%):

Step 19

Extract the blood from its background then use the Lasso Tool (V) to choose a blood trail. Place it beside the model mouth and tweak it using the Warp Tool (Edit > Transform > Warp):

Step 20

Add a mask to this layer and use a soft black brush to blend the blood with the model lips corner and the blood on the ground:

Step 21

I used Curves to darken this blood:

Step 22

Create a Curves adjustment layer on the top of all layers to darken the whole scene:

On this layer mask use a soft black brush to erase the gate as we'll be adding some light to it later:

Step 23

Use Color Balance to give the scene some magenta tone:

Step 24

I used a Photo Filter adjustment layer to add some cyan to the scene:

drunk24[4]

Step 25

Continue coloring the picture with a Color Fill layer (Layer > New Fill Layer > Solid Color):

drunk25[4]

Change the mode of this layer to Exclusion 40%:

drunk25a[4]

Step 26

I used another Color Balance adjustment for this picture:

Step 27

I used a Vibrance adjustment to boost the color:

drunk27[4]

On this layer mask use a soft black brush with a very low opacity (20%) to reduce the redness on the model face:

drunk27a[4]

Step 28

To reduce the redness more I used Hue/Saturation and change the Red settings only:

drunk28[4]

Step 29

Since this step we'll take care of the gate and stair. On the top of all layers use the Lasso Tool to create a selection around the gate, set the feather for it to 70 (depends on your picture size):

Go to Layer >New Adjustment Layer > Channel Mixer:
